The Swiss franc

The Swiss franc, abbreviated CHF, is a unique monetary unit that plays an important role in the global financial system. Its stable status is due to both its history and contemporary economic realities.

This is where it all started; the history of the franc

If you happened to tell a person in the 18th century "you can bank on it," they certainly would not know what you meant. Indeed, the development of banking in Switzerland dates back to the 19th century - at which time the Swiss franc also begins its history.

Until the mid-19th century in Switzerland, each canton, each municipality and even the monasteries used different currencies, making the financial system complex and non-uniform. It was not until 1848 that Switzerland adopted a new Federal Constitution, under which only the Federal Government had the right to mint coins - francs. This was the first step towards an integrated financial system.

In 1865, Switzerland, France, Belgium and Italy formed the Latin Monetary Union, a treaty under which the currencies of the individual countries had a stable 1:1 exchange rate and could be used freely throughout the Union. Such arrangements remained in place until 1926, and it was only after the dissolution of the Union that the Swiss franc became the only legal tender in Switzerland.

The Swiss franc was convertible into gold for many years - this dependence was only finally abolished by the Swiss National Bank in 2000 following a referendum.

How did the Swiss franc become a safe haven?

For years, the Swiss franc has been recognised as one of the safest currencies in the world. This is due, among other things, to the country's long-term stability. Switzerland, by remaining neutral and not involved in conflicts, appears to investors as a safe haven to invest capital.

During the Second World War, most countries stopped exchanging currency to protect themselves from losing their reserves. However, the franc, by decision of the Swiss National Bank, remained fully convertible, strengthening its position as an unshakable currency.

After the war, due to the Bretton Woods system in operation, the Swiss franc maintained a fixed exchange rate and it was only after its break-up in 1973 that the CHF exchange rate strengthened. The independence of the Swiss National Bank (SNB) at the time of the global crisis was quite a challenge to maintain currency stability. However, the SNB pursued a sensible and consistent monetary policy, which ensured that the Swiss franc did not lose purchasing power.

Its position was significantly strengthened in 2008, when the eurozone was going through a crisis. At the time, the CHF exchange rate was appreciating against other currencies.

Some facts about CHF

  • The code CHF, given by the ISO 4217 standard, is an abbreviation of the Latin: Confoederatio Helvetica Franc. The Swiss franc is also sometimes denoted by the symbol ₣.
  • The franc is divided into 100 units, but as there are as many as four languages in Switzerland, the nomenclature of these units varies. In the French language it is a 100 centimes, in the German language it will be referred to as rappens, in the Italian language as centesimo, and in the Rhaeto-Romanian as raps.
  • The 10 cent/rappen coin has not changed its image since 1879, meaning that coins minted even more than a century ago can still be paid for in any Swiss shop.
  • The franking coins (1/2 franc, 1 franc and 2 francs) feature a female figure, the Helvetia, which is a kind of symbol of Switzerland. Coins of smaller denominations (centimes) depict Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom.
  • The CHF banknotes are among the few in the world to have vertical printing, with motifs tying in with the slogan "Switzerland open to the world" on the obverse. The individual Swiss franc notes are decorated with graphics depicting time, light, matter, water or language.

The franc - a rate relevant to borrowers

The franc, thanks to its rigid financial policy, was the currency often chosen by borrowers. During the financial crisis, the minimum exchange rate between the euro and the Swiss franc was abandoned. As a result, the CHF exchange rate skyrocketed, breaking through the PLN 4.00 limit for the first time. The result was a sudden increase in the instalments on loans taken out by franc-borrowers. Today, the exchange rate of the franc and its fluctuations continue to be crucial for those with CHF loans.
